FotoSeptiembre/USA Garden Search

Bill Brockmeier is an award winning San Antonio area fine art photographer who is beginning a special project in which you may be interested. He recently submitted a project proposal to Michael Mehl's Fotoseptiembre-USA and it has been accepted. Each year, this internationally known photographic project seeks to encourage and promote the work of fine art photographers, here and across the globe.

The project is being called: "Art In the Garden." The project will consist of photographically exploring many of the human art traditions and disciplines, being expressed in the context of gardens. This series of photographs has exciting and nearly endless possibilities: from a string quartet dressed in tuxedos, to a portraitist painting a subject, to ballet being danced...all occurring in the setting of various gardens. The garden settings themselves will also encompass a wide gamut: from large corporate/public gardens, to highly manicured, classic private gardens, to informal cottage gardens, to old and totally neglected and abandoned gardens. The central idea of the theme is to explore and express what art, design, and creativity can be, using the garden as a canvas.

And the unique twist Bill will place on these photographs is his own expertise as a fine art panoramic photographer. The panoramic format lends itself exceedingly well to capturing the feel and essence of being in the beautiful, natural space of a garden.

Bill is currently searching for those gardens that will become a component of this new body of work he is producing. He is looking for those owners, developers, and caretakers of special horticultural spaces who would like to partner with him in this effort. All it requires would be opening the space to Bill and his subject (somewhere between one and four artists for the shoot) for something like two hours or so. Also, it would be helpful for him or his assistant to be able to view the space briefly at some time prior to the shoot. Each garden "venue" will only be used for a single shoot. In return for helping Bill in this project, he would be happy to give the owner (or other responsible party) an archival print of the best photograph from the session.

The series will be presented to the San Antonio community the entire month of September, at the Antique Rose Emporium. Michael Shoup, owner of the Antique Rose Emporium, has been very encouraging of Bill's artistic pursuits, and has graciously offered to house this exhibit at his establishment for the month.

If you, or anyone you know is interested in being a part of this project (either as a provider of a garden space, or as an artist/subject) please contact Bill's assistant, Dawn, at 210-355-8097, or at Thanks again for your interest in reading this!
